See all posts by Kevin Godbold “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img FTSE 100 insurance company Aviva (LSE: AV) today announced its exit from Italy with the sale of its remaining businesses there. And I reckon the ongoing transformation of the overall business makes the stock a potential buy.Refocusing on core operationsThe divestment of the Italian insurance businesses is set to raise around €1.3bn for Aviva. And the move continues a strategy under chief executive Amanda Blanc to refocus the overall business on its core operations in the UK, Ireland and Canada.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Blanc explained in today’s news release that since August last year, seven divestments have been announced. And those deals should raise around £5bn in cash proceeds. And in today’s full-year results report, the company said it plans to “accelerate” its debt reduction plans.The strategy reminds me of supermarket chain Tesco‘s retreat from overseas markets. And I think it’s a good idea. Sometimes companies expand but without achieving decent levels of profit with their operations. Or perhaps expansion stretches the balance sheet. And then those overseas and non-core businesses can end up draining management time.I think it’s almost always a good idea for companies to concentrate their focus. And Aviva’s aim of focusing on its core operations could pay off. But a smaller business will lead to a smaller turnover. However, the company today announced a new target to generate more than £5bn of cash remittances from its remaining core businesses over the next three years.To put that in perspective, the firm achieved cash remittances from its core business of £1,359m in 2020, down from £1,409m in 2019. The new target works out at an average of £1,667m over three years and stretches the business a bit. However, remittances from all operations including non-core came in at £1,500m in 2020 down from £2,597 in 2019.Profits are what really countsBut Aviva may be able to squeeze more profits from its core operations. The firm said reduced debt interest and costs “will drive strong growth in excess cash flows.” And it plans to use the money to invest in the business and to grow returns for shareholders.I think the performance of the business through 2020 demonstrates its resilience. The company said profit from its core markets came in just 3% lower compared to 2019, at £2,492m. The directors described 2020 trading in its key markets as “strong”.The outlook is optimistic. Aviva plans to continue with its strategy of focusing its portfolio and expects to transform the company’s performance. It’s clear Aviva wants to focus on profitability from its core markets as a driver of ongoing shareholder returns.Of course, things may not work out as planned. Aviva has a bit of a chequered history when it comes to providing shareholder returns. The share price and earnings have been volatile, and the company has sometimes trimmed or cut its dividend. Although I see the current restructuring as positive, there’s no escaping the inherent cyclicality in the business.Nevertheless, with the share price near 391p, the forward-looking dividend yield for 2021 is just below 6%. And I’m tempted to buy a few shares to see how the story unfolds in the years ahead. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

The project was born as an extension of the Forest House in a second stage. The pavilion is a recreational open-plan area with a bar and a fireplace, which also houses a small kitchen and a bathroom, which can be hidden behind a wall of wooden folding panels when not in use.Save this picture!© Patricia HernándezFrom the outside, the pavilion looks like a small glass box of 9 x 5 meters, which sits on the top of a 10 meters high rock and disappears beneath a roof garden, buried under the natural slope of the land as if it was a cave. The pavilion blends seamlessly with the site, establishing a direct relationship with the timber “box” of the existing house.Save this picture!© Patricia HernándezWhile the Forest House was born as a top-down path, the pavilion rises from the beginning as the opportunity to generate a route from bottom to top.It is a single object intervention that generates the necessity of weaving the natural slope through a series of ramps that run along the site from the lowest point where visitors parking-spaces are located, pass through the pavilion, reach the timber box of the existing house, up to the terraces of the rooms, complementing and thus closing the path started with the construction of the Forest House and ensuring accessibility to every area of the house.Save this picture!PlanProject gallerySee allShow less2013 Lamp Lighting Solutions Awards CompetitionArticlesKunshan Middle School Proposal / United Design GroupArticles Share “COPY” The Forest Pavilion / Espacio EMA CopyAbout this officeEspacio EMAOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodMazamitlaMexicoPublished on January 25, 2013Cite: “The Forest Pavilion / Espacio EMA” [El Kiosko en el Bosque / Espacio EMA] 25 Jan 2013.

In Miraflores House, the door presents itself perpendicular to the path of arrival on foot or by car, that is, on its side, to better slim its figure (perhaps something learned from the master Siza). We can see how in a photograph of the house, the view of the west facade has been placed so that the door remains invisible, even if it has a considerable width. As a product of this, the house is offered to us as “an opaque package, turned back”, virtually convex.Save this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoWe crossed the door and the house unfolds in an L shape, with uneven ends. In the short end, facing east, the house provides a firm contact with the ground plane, while at the other end, more dilated, oriented north, the house is suddenly off the ground in a bucking the sets it on two slender pillars in an unstable situation. Some of that same impulse seems to register the house by Clorindo Testa in Pedrera. At this end, the path of the visitor, linear and limitless, traverses the service area and stretches outward through a gallery; or branches beforehand ascending up a narrow side staircase that lines up as a chute into the bedroom area. However, in the short end, the journey is closed on itself in a jammed end, stopped after passing the master bedroom closet, to finish off blocked by the bathroom wall. The last image delivered by the end of each journey is also contrasted: the north end, with the horizontal outside landscape and its variations throughout the day and seasons, is opposed to the other end with the repeated image of the interior, with the face of the viewer, duplicated by the bathroom mirror.Save this picture!PlanAfter passing the entrance and turning left, a brutal fact comes upon us. A few inches from our heads cantilevers a T, formed by the meeting of two beams that build the lintel of the largest window overlooking the courtyard. This T moves towards us virtually severing the lobby-library entrance to the house, and defines the opening to the living-dining room, and the folded part of the window looking north. This T also produces a coupling of the house to the ground, while determining its two main directions. It fixes a point in the circular space of the vast plain, as does a crossroads. The house is an L which becomes T (they say Marcelo Villafañe does X). But if the house is connected to the ground by this crossroads of the T beam, a few meters above it, the roof makes a round movement, like the twist of a horse, which excites and destabilizes the appeased image of the house.Save this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoThere is a couple in cinema that suggests the house. In North by Northwest, by Hitchcock, Cary Grant, stationed at a crossroads in the American midwest -in the middle of nowhere-, hurls himself in a vertical race one way, while a crop duster threatens hovering over his head, until Grant finally manages to escape, hiding in a cornfield. This circular movement that unfolds the roof has a firm support in the tree in the courtyard, which even though it is not on the ground, it does appear in sketches and drawings by Caballero.Save this picture!SectionIf the house is a horse that turns around, the tree is the post that sustains the movement.”Parar rodeo” was called the habituation of the pack to a certain place. This guaranteed a quiet and unified herd. For this purpose, a vertical stick was stuck in the ground that served as a reference to animals. We consider this vertical trunk as one of the first faint changes in the landscape. It is logical that in the absence of trees and the ubiquitous horizontality, a simple vertical line acquires a founding power. This image, though weak, (…) has further references in the “palo de doma”.1Save this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoThis tree in Miraflores House plays an analogous role to another tree, the one in Frittegotto house. There, the tree is also at the center of a dance, which is established between the existing wall that chamfers the property from the street and its reflection, the wall of the house that folds over the garden.Save this picture!DrawingAt the same time, the tree in Miraflores House is projected perpendicularly to the house and penetrates inside transmuting into its horizontal inverse, the partition of the main bedroom, and oblique, the plane of the staircase that unfolds from it. A similar operation occurs in Cinalli House, where the tree in the courtyard builds a plane of correspondence with the wall that divides the bedroom/living room.Save this picture!© Gustavo FrittegottoMiraflores House shows that, in the plains, to look at the flowers, to scan the momentarily postponed last and final horizon line, one must be raised, loosened from the soil: “The posts should have broad vision to monitor confidently and to ensure the defense in case of attackers, (…)”/ 1Text by Arq.

Film showing builds solidarity with Anti-fascist Caravan to Donbass

first_imgPart of audience at film showing.It’s been four years since a far-right junta supported by Washington seized power in the former Soviet republic of Ukraine and began a war of extermination against the people of the Donbass mining region bordering Russia. On March 18, a film showing was held at the Solidarity Center in New York to shed light on this crisis and efforts to build solidarity.Introducing the films, Kayla Popuchet of Workers World Party explained, “The eastern Ukrainian region of Donbass has made a militant resistance to the fascists, as they are composed of working-class folks who hold anti-fascist beliefs. In the U.S. we do not hear about the war going on in Ukraine because our bourgeois media do not want us to be aware of what the government here is supporting. It is more convenient for them to silence the resistance. But with us, their words and struggles are alive. We see you, we hear you, and we love you.”The first film shown, “Ukraine: Masks of the Revolution,” by filmmaker Paul Moreira, caused a scandal throughout Europe when it was broadcast on French television in 2016. Moreira exposed the role of neo-Nazi gangs in Ukraine’s so-called “revolution of dignity”; the massacre of anti-fascist activists in Odessa on May 2, 2014; and the role of U.S. and European officials in covering up their crimes. The Ukrainian government tried to have the film banned.Commenting on Moreira’s film, Greg Butterfield, coordinator of the International Action Center’s work in solidarity with Ukraine and Donbass, said: “Two things really stand out to me. First is the similarity of the actions by the fascists in Ukraine to the white supremacists who attacked Charlottesville last year, including how they try to justify themselves to the media. And second, the U.S. war drive against Russia didn’t start with the allegations of ‘election tampering’ in 2016. It has been building for a long time, under both Democratic and Republican regimes.”After the Moreira film, “Banda Bassotti: The International Brigade” had its first public showing in North America. The film documents the history of the Italian revolutionary music collective Banda Bassotti and several international solidarity caravans the group has organized, since the 1980s, to Nicaragua, El Salvador, Palestine and other locations. This year Banda Bassotti is organizing its fourth Antifascist Caravan to Donbass, which will bring humanitarian aid and political solidarity to the people of the besieged Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics.The film showing attracted many young people, as well as veteran activists, who participated in a lively discussion afterward. They enjoyed homemade borscht (beet soup) and kasha (buckwheat porridge). More than $200 in donations was collected to support the next Banda Bassotti Antifascist Caravan to Donbass.Activists also announced plans to participate in the upcoming anti-war spring actions set for April 15 in many cities across the U.S. and to hold a protest in New York on May 2, the fourth anniversary of the Odessa massacre.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Journalist was gunned down to prevent him naming corrupt policemen, colleagues and press reports say

first_img Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Peru April 1, 2020 Find out more February 10, 2017 Find out more Organisation News News PeruAmericas News Five days after the murder of Radio Exitos reporter Miguel Pérez Julca in the northwestern city of Jaén, two other Jaén journalists yesterday said they had received SMS messages warning that they would be next if they continued to cover local corruption and crime. May 15, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist was gunned down to prevent him naming corrupt policemen, colleagues and press reports say The Peruvian press freedom group Instituto prensa y sociedad (IPYS) said on 7 April that Pérez Julca’s murder had not been solved because of the multitude of anonymous sources of information about it. Reporters Without is also waiting for a thorough investigation of the killing to be completed.____________________________________________________________22.03.07 – Two journalists warned they will be “next” after radio reporter’s murderFive days after Radio Exitos reporter Miguel Pérez Julca’s murder, two journalists in the northwestern city of Jaén yesterday said they had received SMS messages on their mobile phones warning that they would be “the next to be killed” if they continued to cover corruption and crime in Jaén.They are Juan Vásquez, the correspondent of the América Noticias news agency and the Canal 9 TV station and Walter Altamirano of station Radio Amajú. Both of them have asked for police protection.The city council has declared a three-month state of emergency in order to combat a crime wave. Mayor Jaime Vilchez denied any involvement in the murder of Pérez, who had attacked his record on fighting crime.“The death threats against Pérez’s two colleagues unfortunately tend to confirm that he was killed for doing his job,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We call on the authorities to ensure that Vásquez and Altamirano are protected and to bring the truth about Pérez’s murder to light. The plight of the media in Jaén bodes ill for all journalists in Peru. The interior ministry should take over the case.”——————————19.03.2007 – Radio reporter gunned down in an apparent contract killing linked to his workReporters Without Borders expressed its deepest sympathy today with the family and colleagues of Miguel Pérez Julca, a radio journalist who was gunned down on 16 March in Jaén, in the northwestern province of Cajamarca. Given the stories Pérez was covering and the manner of his death, the organisation hopes the police will thoroughly investigate the possibility that it was connected with his work.“He was looking into local corruption, he said he was being followed just before his death, and his murderers behaved like contract killers,” the press freedom organisation said. “So for all these reasons the investigators should work on the assumption he was killed because of his reporting, even if that upsets the local government.”.Reporters Without Borders added: “Gunned down in front of his family, Pérez was the first journalist to be murdered in Peru since 2004. His murder must not be left unpunished, or else it will encourage others to do the same.”Aged 38, Pérez was returning to his home in the Jaén district of Las Palmeras with his wife and two children on the evening of 16 March when two gunmen on a motorcycle shot him twice in the head and then sped away. He died while being rushed to hospital. His wife, Nelly Guevara Arrascue, was hit in the left knee.Pérez worked for “El informativo del pueblo,” a news programme on local Radio Exitos. He was also a contributor to Radio Oriental and Radio Jaén. He had recently blamed Jaén mayor Jaime Vilchez Oblitas for several cases of mismanagement. He has also covered local corruption and violent crime in Jaén. The day before his murder, he told friends he had seen a white car following him on the street.The daily La República reported that several witnesses had identified the killers as being local criminals but no arrests had been made.The last two journalists to be killed in Peru were Antonio de la Torre Echeandía of Radio Orbita, who was murdered in Yungay (400 km north of Lima) on 14 February 2004, and Alberto Rivera Fernández of radio Frecuencia Oriental, who was gunned down in the east-central city of Pucallpa on 21 April 2004. The local mayors and their close associates were allegedly implicated in both cases but were let off by the courts last year.center_img Peruvian newspapers and colleagues of Radio Éxitos journalist Miguel Pérez Julca have said he was gunned down by two hired killers on 17 March in Jaén because he announced during his programme, “El Informativo del Pueblo,” the day before that in three days’ time he would reveal the names of Jaén police officers who had links to drug traffickers and who protected criminal gangs.Lacking resources, Pérez did not record his programmes, but his sound engineer, Fernando Jiménez, recalled that he announced that he would “report on a case involving the regional government.” Fellow journalist and friend Pepe Morales said Pérez “had the names of three corrupt police officers attached to the Jaén interior ministry office who extorted money from drug traffickers and other gang members.”Two people have so far been arrested as murder suspects. One is Alí Zamudio, an alleged shooter. The other is Juan Hurtado Vásquez, the alleged instigator. But the El Comercio daily claims that the investigation is “biased and inadequate” because witnesses have given statements in an improper manner and without a lawyer being present.The authorities have also arrested Elbia Mendoza, the owner of the motorcycle allegedly used in the shooting, and Dílbert Cabada Arteaga, a youth who is supposed to have followed Pérez prior to his murder and seen the equivalent of about 1,000 euros being paid to one of the alleged contract killers. But El Comercio and La República, another daily, claim that they were all arrested just to deflect attention from those really responsible, namely police officers.Pérez’s widow, who was wounded when her husband was gunned down, has left Jaén with help from the Peruvian press freedom organisation, the Instituto Prensa y Sociedad (IPYS).—————————————–30.04.07 – 18-year-old youth arrested as suspected hit-man in murder of Miguel Pérez Julca A youth suspected of being one of the contract killers in the 17 March murder of journalist Miguel Pérez Julca was arrested on 25 April. Police detained Dilber Cabada Arteaga, 18, as he was travelling on a motorcycle taxi in Mesones Muro, in the northwestern province of Ferreñafe, not far from where Pérez’ relatives live. When the police moved in to make the arrest, Cabada tried to escape and then attacked the police officers, who used their weapons to subdue him.Cabada has reportedly confessed to being present when the killing was planned by the alleged instigator, Juan Hurtado Vásquez, and when Hurtado paid the equivalent of 1,150 euros to a contract killer who has not yet been identified. Cabada also reportedly confessed that, a month before the killing, a woman called Elbia Mendoza gave him a motorcycle with no licence plate so that he and two other individuals could follow Pérez. ——————————————-10.04.07 – Suspected organiser of journalist’s murder arrestedPolice on 4 April arrested a suspect, Juan Hurtado Vásquez, in the murder of journalist Miguel Pérez Julca, of Radio Éxitos, who was shot dead in the northwestern town of Jaén on 16 March. Hurtado, the companion of the president of a child welfare centre, wanted to punish the journalists for criticising the centre, police said. He reportedly hired two killers known to police, Walter García Valdivia (“Zurdo”) and Alí Zamudio Saavedra (“Balán”), who were arrested late last month.

Six-figures offered in scramble for top staff

first_imgSix-figures offered in scramble for top staffOn 30 May 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. The booming recruitment market has led to a 50 per cent rise in job vacancies for high-calibre HR directors. Exclusive research for Personnel Today found there were 456 posts advertised in the year to March, compared with 304 in the previous 12 months.And the scramble for talented directors is leading to companies offering six-figure salaries and golden handshakes. Brian Jones, an HR recruitment specialist at CSA Management Consultants, said, “This time last year, golden handshakes weren’t really happening in HR. Now they are. We are talking about six figures plus a golden handshake because companies are fighting to get the talent.”Amanda Molyneaux, personnel manager at Liverpool’s John Moores University, said the research showed consistent year-on-year growth in recruitment advertising. She said, “The greatest factor in the increase in jobs advertised is likely to be a consequence of the increasing requirement for specialist human resource expertise.”This, she said, is down to a number of drivers including the “relentless growth of employment legislation [and] the growing complexity of employing people”.Mark Childs, director of global compensation and benefits at Fidelity Investments, said the profession is seeing rapid change in personnel remuneration.He said, “External issues such as the effects of European and UK legislation, increased competition and the ‘war for talent’ have created a buoyant market for a new breed of HR professionals who demand flexible and rewarding compensation and benefits.”Meanwhile, HR directors have maintained their earnings lead over IT, according to a survey by the Institute of Management.But the figures show IT, which has moved from seventh ranking last year to fifth in 2000, is closing the gap with HR.The survey puts average pay for an HR director at £103,212, compared with £102,205 in IT.The study was carried out by Salary Survey Publications. A summary of the findings, produced in association with TMP Worldwide, will be free inside next week’s issue. Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more
